John Kerry sometimes quotes the scripture: "Faith without works is dead" (James 2:17). This post points out that by that criterion Kerry's own faith is very hollow indeed.

Jeff Jacoby on Kerry's flip-flops: "Bush, unlike Kerry, has the courage of his convictions. He can take a strong stand and not run away from it when the political winds shift. On the big issues, the crucial issues, he is a decisive man who means what he says -- and who isn't afraid to say it even when his listeners disagree. For a nation going to the polls in wartime, no issue matters more than character. Kerry has much to recommend him, and Bush's flaws are many. But Bush has the character and backbone of a leader. And Kerry doesn't."

Daniel Pipes: "It has not been fully appreciated that, when it comes to the Middle East, Bush has systematically responded to the region's problems by dispatching decades' worth of accepted practices and replacing them with stunningly different approaches. In contrast, John Kerry unimaginatively holds to failed policies of the past.... It is easy to overlook Bush's radicalism in the Middle East, for in spirit he is a conservative, someone inclined to preserve what is best of the past. A conservative, however, understands that to protect what he cherishes at times requires creative activism and tactical agility."

Bigots for Kerry: "If George Bush had chosen the racist David Duke as a running mate, I'd have voted against him, almost without regard to any other issue. Instead, John Kerry chose the xenophobe John Edwards as a running mate. I will therefore vote against John Kerry. Duke thinks it's imperative to protect white jobs from black competition. Edwards thinks it's imperative to protect American jobs from foreign competition. There's not a dime's worth of moral difference there. While Duke would discriminate on the arbitrary basis of skin color, Edwards would discriminate on the arbitrary basis of birthplace. Either way, bigotry is bigotry, and appeals to base instincts should always be repudiated."

Bush did not lie: "President Bush couldn't possibly have lied about WMD unless he miraculously knew something that neither the CIA nor all the other world's intelligence agencies knew: that Saddam didn't have WMD. Now how could he have known that? Did he hire his own private investigators to dispatch some Farsi-speaking, cowboy hat-wearing paragon of erudition to comb its entire landmass to confirm there were no WMD? Frankly, it is nothing short of amazing that Democrats are still peddling this canard about Bush lying about Iraqi WMD. But they are. In the meantime we see that they really don't care about presidential lying about war, because it is they and John Kerry who are lying about it."



Democrat hatred: "Shelby Pope is a 60-year-old small- business woman from Pasadena who, until recently, had never been in a fight. Then a Democrat spit on her. "It was horrifying,' said Pope, who puts out Bush/Cheney literature on her table at a Los Angeles flea market at Fairfax and Melrose avenues.... Pope has volunteered for Republican campaigns since the Eisenhower era, and says this year the political climate is "the worst I've ever seen.' ... "These people are calling Bush 'Hitler,' ' said Frank Napolitano, a Republican precinct campaigner from Altadena. "I didn't call Clinton 'Hitler.'' Napolitano has had several Bush/Cheney signs stolen from his front yard. He then put up a sign saying, "Please don't steal my signs.' It was stolen, too..... The experience has pushed him toward harsher language. "The Democrats are Nazis,' he said. "They don't believe in freedom of speech. They're Nazis. They're intellectual morons.'" I have put another example of an attack on a Republicans up on EDUCATION WATCH.

And Mike Tremoglie has more examples of Democrat attacks on democracy. One excerpt: "On October 19, 2004 a movie theater in Jenkintown Pennsylvania, a suburban borough just north of Philadelphia with a population of about 4500, was scheduled to show the documentary Stolen Honor. This movie features the testimony of Vietnam POW's and it is extremely critical of John Kerry. However, after receiving threats of " civil disobedience" (i.e. destruction of property and who knows what to people), the owner of the theater canceled the showing. Because of Stalinist intimidation, nearly 400 people were denied the opportunity to see a movie simply because it was critical of a presidential candidate. Jenkintown was more like Tienamen Square than Independence Mall. According to Gil Spencer, a columnist for the Delaware County Daily Times, a suburban Philadelphia paper, "Thuggish pro-Kerry "protesters" showed up at the urging of the Kerry campaign. Police had to be called to the scene to keep order."

Voting fraud: "The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said it would wait until after the presidential election to investigate Republican charges that nearly 1000 convicted felons had illegally requested absentee ballots or already voted early. The state Republican Party said it had combed a list of suspected felons and found 925, mostly Democrats, who had not had their voting rights restored, but had requested ballots or voted early." There is another article here on the third-world shambles that is the American voting system. Australia's system is not perfect but it is miles more secures than America's.

Arafat: "Speaking of media bias, here's a question you won't hear in our big papers or on network TV: Does Yasser Arafat have AIDS? We know he has a blood disease that is depressing his immune system. We know that he has suddenly dropped considerable weight - possibly as much as 1/3 of all his body weight. We know that he is suffering intermittent mental dysfunction. What does this sound like?" Senior Nazis were homosexual too, of course.

Fruitcake Walter Cronkite believes Karl Rove is behind the recent bin Laden tape

Hilarious: "A Vatican-approved sex guide is encouraging churchgoers to make love more often to offset "impotence and frigidity" and address papal concerns over declining birth rates among Italian Roman Catholics. The book, "It's A Sin Not To Do It", written by two theologians, promises the reader answers to "everything you wanted to know about sex but the Church [almost] never dared to tell you". In their attempt to galvanise the faithful, Roberto Beretta and Elisabetta Broli, who write regularly for the Italian Bishops' magazine Avvenire, have written one of the raciest works ever to deal with the church and sex."

Uncivil Rights has some good posts up about the unending Democrat talent for inconsistency and self-contradiction.

Wayne Lusvardi has just done a post on the place of paranoia in Leftist politics.

I have just put up on LEFTISTS AS ELITISTS an article from a major Leftist publication that is absolutely dripping with thinly disguised contempt for ordinary people and their entertainments.

That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the Kerry campaign. They have put up a man whose policies seem to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though they have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftists are phonies. For most of them all that they want is to sound good. They don't care about doing good. That's why they do so much harm. They don't really care what the results of their policies are as long as they are seen as having good intentions
